Gary Allis (pictured) runs one the most successful dairy calf-to-beef operations in the UK. Over 1,500 Holstein Freisian bulls are finished annually with plans to grow the business further.

The business has been built on the back of recycled material, byproducts and a deep understanding of the supply chain, through working with Adam Buitelaar of the Buitelaar Calf group. Calves cost £100 each, and these calves are taken to 450kg liveweight at 225kg carcase weight at just over 12 months old.
